The Prussian Ministry of the Interior and Culture conducted two major surveys between 1842 and 1845. These surveys aimed at providing comprehensive insights into the social standing of Jews in their respective districts. This source edition publishes the full text of this unique survey.
This material meticulously records the Jewish inhabitants of nearly 4,000 places in Prussia, including synagogues, schools and other property belonging to the Jewish community along with the legal stipulations listed for each region. At the same time, these surveys also reflect the relationship between Jewish and Christian populations as well as the motives for the Prussian official's treatment of Jewish affairs. Indexes of names and places facilitate access to the host of information.
Numerous students from all over the world – among them personalities who were later to become famous – developed their intellectual foundations at the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität in Berlin during the first half of the 19th century. The "Matrikel" – the register of the members of what is now the Humboldt-Universität – provides unique insights into fascinating cultural-historical details of that period. The original wording of the entries for over 30,000 students reveals a wealth of biographical information: details of family background, previously visited universities and subjects studied, as well as information such as duels fought, involvement in criminal offences and military service, offer extensive possibilities for history of science and prosopographical analyses.
